Fibres

We produce coloured and natural wool and alpaca fibres for spinning & felting:

  • Individual fleeces for hand spinning or blending with other fibres to produce original yarns – minimum order is 1kg.
  • Natural coloured wool tops available in 100gm plaits for $10 and 400gm bumps for $40. This washed and combed fibre is ideal for speedy waste-free spinning.

For Felting, select your fleeces in several colours to wash/overdye/card then felt into floor rugs, garments, wall hangings and soft furnishings.

Prepared washed and combed wool tops are ready for immediate felting or can be used as the base layer and your colours applied to the top layer to save on more expensive commercially dyed wool tops.

Felt batts are also available for large projects. Natural Coloured Batts are packaged in 200gm bags for $15 or 1kg for $75. Larger orders are available on request.

For weaving, corriedale fleeces are ideal for packed fleece rugs. Spin your original yarns and overdye them to use as weft feature yarns in fabric for garments and in scarves.
